Therese Foley Memorial Nursing Scholarship

A passionate belief in the dignity of every individual defined Therese Foley’s life. It was a life marked by the devotion of her time and effort on behalf of others.

She lived her beliefs through her professionalism as a Registered Nurse and Clinical Nursing Instructor, her commitment as a mother, and her advocacy for public health through environmental protection. In each role she was completely committed to advancing the well-being of others

A scholarship in honor of Therese Foley was established at SCCCC to continue her legacy of helping others become successful. She cherished her career in nursing and the opportunities it afforded her. Therese would not have used the phrase “pay it forward” but her life was a remarkable example of that way of life.
